A Nebraska bar owner and US Marine that killed a rioter who was attacking him and his business has committed suicide, a friend of Jake Gardner has confirmed to The Gateway Pundit on Sunday — however, there may be more to this story than initially met the eye.
Gardner’s body was found outside a healthcare clinic in Hillsboro, Oregon — roughly 20 minutes outside of Portland.
According to a report from Omaha-World Herald, “Gardner shot himself after authorities in Hillsboro, Oregon, received a call of a suicidal party, said two law enforcement sources who spoke on condition of anonymity. The death happened this weekend, though Hillsboro police would not confirm the death or the time it happened.”
Sources say he was staying with his uncle in the Portland area.
Portland has also been a hub of extremely lawless riots and violence for months.
Friends of Gardner have expressed disbelief that Gardner was suicidal.
“I’ll be honest Cassandra, I’ve known Jake ten years, spent thousands of hours with him, and he isn’t the guy to kill himself,” Gardner’s longtime friend and radio host JD Sharp told the Gateway Pundit. “He sent me a message last week telling me he was sober for a year, and had just written a book.”
